At Copeland Jewelers we’re dog lovers, so we love supporting Divine Canines therapy dogs. Check out the info below about their biggest annual fund-raiser in May, Barks For Beers. Everyone had a great time in May of 2017 & 2019 when we brought in photographers, Don Rogers and Chisum Pierce to photograph the Divine Canines therapy dogs in jewels.
This home-grown Austin group supports more than 140 active dog-handler teams who all volunteer their time to visit more than 210 partner sites and special events throughout Central Texas.
Their active dog-handler teams visit thousands of children, adults, and elderly persons on a regular basis. Therapeutic interaction with these specially trained dogs can result in emotional and physical benefits, including improved mood, confidence, communication, relaxation, and trust.
Divine Canines provides free therapy dog services in central Texas for:
- Children struggling with literacy, dyslexia, or those with a history of abuse or neglect
- Children and adults with severe cognitive, developmental, or physical disabilities and those living with mental illness
- Older adults living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other aging issues
- Hospitalized patients and those in rehabilitation facilities
- Teenagers and adults with eating disorders
- Wounded soldiers returning from war
Barks For Beers
Barks for Beers is Divine Canine’s largest fund-raiser and definitely the most fun. It helps with dog training costs and keeping their volunteers, human and canine, equipped to provide the best possible services.
Here’s how it works: First, they’re partnering with 22 amazing craft breweries for a whole month, from May 1 to May 31, 2021!
Beginning May 1, purchase the 2021 Divine Canines pint glass and Pawsport for $30+ tax at any participating brewery listed below. That pint glass is great but it’s the Pawsport that entitles you to one free pour at each brewery listed below.
